Website Gives Tea Party Students a Sense of Community

With a new school year upon us, and it being an election year, it has become more important and pertinent than ever to keep students aware of their options when it comes to politics. An often underplayed and ignored group of political thinkers at the college level are those who define themselves as conservatives, and more specifically those that align with the Tea Party Movement.
However, all of that is changing thanks to the Tea Party Students website, which offers its members a safe, reliable online network where they can swap thoughts, ideas and more pertaining to their political beliefs. With singular and group representation at colleges across the country ranging from schools such as Harvard and Brandeis to California State University in Sacramento, the website’s mission is steadily spreading as more and more young people learn of its existence.
While a lot of their initiatives and programs are geared toward college students, Tea Party Students (TPS) is also a great avenue for high schoolers and teens. The organization and its members seek to promote the 3 core values of the Tea Party Movement, which are: fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free markets. Additionally, TPS must align their operations and procedures with that of the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition and, although they are proponents of free speech, the group reserves the right to reject anyone promoting racial discrimination or hate speech.
The group’s primary partner is the Tea Party Patriots group, which has undoubtedly helped TPS steer and coordinate their many program areas. Among these program areas is the Tea Party Conference for students held in D.C., the syndicated, regularly updated TPS blog and the Tea Party 101 course, along with many others.
The site itself boasts a “Wall of Honor” where supporters, sponsors and volunteers are thanked for their efforts and dedication. One glance at that and it’s not hard to tell that their backing and influence is continuously growing.
Guided by a knowledgeable coalition of professors, TPS members learn the ins and outs of their party of choice and gain a real-world understanding of how it all plays into policy-making and the political landscape as a whole. If the group achieves nothing else other than the spread of ideals, awareness and knowledge, its creators will be happy—and so far, that, along with so much more, is just what they’re doing.
So if you’re a Tea Party Supporter in High School and College and long for a supportive community and network where you can voice your opinions and learn, the TPS website might be just the thing you need.
